The Lion Inside
No matter your size, we all have a mouse AND a lion inside!
Rachel Bright's The Lion Inside is one of my favourite picture books of all time! It's an utterly feel good story about one little mouse trying to make himself heard and noticed among the other animals and discovering along the way that even the smallest of us has the heart of a mighty lion.
Bright’s rhyming is on point and Jim Field’s illustrations are fantastically quirky! The contrasting personalities of the mouse and lion are so effortlessly expressed through the tiniest details, whilst important messages of bravery, finding your voice and making friends positively radiates from both. A must for fans of Julia Donaldson and Lu Fraser's The Littlest Yak.
